Alex Hulme - Climb
Having worked previously with Alex on a couple other music videos (once as DOP and another as editor) it was nice to have full control of ‘Climb’. This also meant Alex was really trusting, so was more than happy to stand in the middle of a very busy street in Liverpool looking like he’s singing to himself (whilst I’ve put on a long lens and trying to look nonchalant so that passer-bys don’t do the awkward ducking or asking to pass whilst trying to film in public - in fact it turns out when you want people to walk into your shot, it doesn’t happen!). Having not filmed there for a while, I forgot how good Liverpool is to film in; the people are lovely, the city is gorgeous and having quite a small centre, for a shoot like this (small budget and little time), it is perfect.
Personal favourite bits to this video, is the bridge cut away at 01:19, the shadow of the passing birds at 02:33 and the transition/pan at 02:44.
